Question: What voltage would you recommend for a stun gun?

Answer: Since higher voltage means faster immobilization, it also means the current can pass through more layers of clothing. We would recommend as high a voltage as you can afford. It is also like buying a computer--you would like to get the fastest one if you could afford it.


Question: How often do I have to recharge the ZAP stun gun?

Answer: Depending on the stun gun, most rechargeable ZAP stun guns on our site only need to be charged 6-8 hours each for every 30 days. Please see the product manual for more information.


Question: Is it the amps or the volts that have the most impact on the attacker?

Answer: In any case, it’s the amps that provide the juice delivering the most energy rather than the voltage. Voltage gives it the push to go through clothing so the higher the real voltage, the better the ability to deliver the charge through thick jackets and such. Amperage is the biting force.

And in the case of stun devices, we’re talking thousandths of an amp, measured as milliamps. You’ve heard the saying, “One amp will kill ya.” Well, we’re nowhere close to that when dealing with these self-defense products.

Most stun guns are between 3 and 4 milliamps. This amount is enough to deliver the effect you’re after, as it is more than enough to overload the electrical impulses of the human body. The body has nerves just about everywhere so anywhere you touch the person with the probes of the stunner is going to have an effect. However, if possible, you want to go for the major muscles groups such as the neck, upper body, or even groin area to have the best effect. Anything close to or over 5 milliamps will overload the circuitry inside the device and burn out the capacitor. The capacitor is where the energy builds up and is stored till it’s discharged through the probes. Too many milliamps and you’ll burn out the unit.


Question: Just how powerful is stun gun voltage?

Answer: If you’ve ever experienced the discomfort of static electricity, such as when you rub your shoes against a synthetic rug and proceed to touch a door knob, then you could safely say that you’ve been shocked with about 20,000 to 30,000 volts of electricity. This does not even compare to what a stunning device gives.


Question: What are the typical effects of stun guns?

Answer: A stun gun keys into the nervous system dumping energy into the muscles. This causes a loss of balance leaving the assailant disoriented and confused. Stun guns require direct contact. The longer you touch the attacker with the prongs of a stun gun, the longer the effects will last. The shock will not pass from person to person.

 As a general rule, a one-half second contact can repel and startle the attacker, giving some pain and muscle contraction. One to two seconds can cause muscle spasms and a dazed mental state. Over three seconds can cause loss of balance and muscle control, mental confusion and disorientation. Realize that 3 seconds is quite a long time when in a physical struggle. Every person is different and will react differently to the effects of a stun gun. What may put one person down in 3 seconds could take 5 seconds on another person.


Question: What is the warranty on your stun guns?

Answer: All of the stun guns we carry come with a Lifetime Warranty.


Question: General information about Zap stun guns?

Answer: ZAP stun guns are unique in that all models have rubber-coated action grips. ZAP stun guns come in different voltages ranging from 350,000 to 1.2 million volts. ZAP stun guns have a higher instant incapacitation rate than a 9mm handgun, and are legal to carry in most states. When seconds count, a ZAP stun gun can quickly incapacitate an attacker and enable you to escape unharmed. ZAP stun guns deliver superior quality and are a smart choice for your self-defense needs.


Question: What do ZAP stun guns do to the human body?

Answer: What the current does is cause the muscles to do a lot of work very rapidly. Your body tightens up to defend against the pain whether is a strike from a fist to the stomach or a ZAP stun gun to the chest. This depletes the blood sugar and starts converting it in to lactic acid. Once enough lactic acid builds up the target can no longer create energy and they lose control of their body. This usually takes several seconds of contact at a minimum to make this happen. People in pain want to get away and that is what you should expect. When you hit someone with a hand-held unit they will back up immediately and try to avoid the source of the pain, IE the ZAP stun gun. Even the sound is enough to intimidate most people and even animals.


Question: Are stun guns lethal?

Answer: The voltage on a stun gun may appear high, but it is the amps that actually matter when it comes to permanent damage or death. The stun guns we sell are less-lethal devices. They are designed NOT to kill people, but merely to cause pain to gain control or to get away depending on the application. To put things in perspective, one amp will kill a person. Our stun guns deliver 3 to 4 milliamps. This is far below the amperage that could do any lasting damage to an individual.
